observing clouds drift

The remaining stump.. Is so important too.. Lots of life depends on dead wood

oldegg said...

And even we may feed the worms. Not much is wasted on earth except time.

Grace said...

I feel for that remaining tree stump ~

Brian Miller said...

remnants of that sentinel....
what a view he had eh?
makes me wonder what cut him down...

Mary said...

Seeing a tree stump often makes me sad. I think of a life ended too soon & in a violent way. I think of all that was lost.

Sumana Roy said...

trees attract rain laden clouds... in their absence the clouds will drift away...

Even the old stump sees things that many humans miss!

fitting haiku for the residual stump.

Nonnie said...

The stump reminds me of "The Giving Tree' by Shel Silverstein. It is still giving- providing a seat for those who need one. That's a mighty big shadow it has.
